Praise for The Gentle Colonoscopy
"Dear Carla, thank you for making my colonoscopy prep experience a life-changing journey. Your support and guidance at the various stages leading up to the
actual procedure were invaluable.
From our first meeting, it was clear that your primary concern was for the best outcome for me, and as we discussed my options, I felt able to make a confident and well-informed decision. I appreciated your perfectly timed check-in phone calls, and felt I had a true ally in the process.
The products and recipes you recommended were so beneficial to my overall health that I have continued to incorporate them as part of my diet! I have lost 8 pounds in three weeks, and I intend to use my new-found knowledge to get me down to my ultimate goal. Thanks again for your expertise and professional care.”
Your new friend,
“I am a 65 year old woman who was quite concerned about having a colonoscopy. Actually, I was terrified. When I found Carla, I felt like my prayers had been answered. Carla customized my colonoscopy preparation and spoke with me daily. I cannot tell you how reassuring and calming she was. The doctor I chose wanted me to take 6 – 8 packets of Dulcolax. Following Carla’s protocol, I was able to get through the procedure without any Dulcolax. Carla was there for me from start to finish. I don’t think I could have gone through with the procedure without her amazing guidance and support. Her booklet is amazing! I am so grateful to her. I feel like she saved my life. They found two polyps. The ONLY reason I went through with the colonoscopy is because Carla helped me through this step by step, making a terrifying procedure doable.
As a nurse myself, her protocol made complete sense to me, so I followed
it to the “T.”
"The preparation was excellent and my doctor was very pleased. As you can imagine, I was even more pleased. There is no information like this out there. It is truly unique. Carlas` prep is easy to follow, gentle, and works like a charm. You can’t go wrong.“
"This is the second year in a row I've followed Carla's prep. I was actually sort of looking forward to it the second time around because it IS so gentle, that it ends up being a wonderful cleanse. I feel nauseated fairly easily and have a hiatus hernia which makes it worse. However, I didn't feel sick ONCE while on Carla's prep! I have recommended it to quite a few people who have told me nightmare stories about how sick they got trying to follow the usual prep, and by people who ended up having to cancel because they were not prepped properly. (One of whom was in the hospital at the time.... even the hospital couldn't prep correctly!) Even once I got to the clear fluids, I was never weak. Gatorade makes me sick so if I'd followed the normal prep, my electrolytes would have bottomed out, but because carla recommends coconut water, which is packed with electrolytes, I was fine. There is simply no easier way to prepare for your colonoscopy. I highly recommend you try Carla's prep. It works."
“I am 67 years old and because I am very sensitive to any electrolyte changes I didn’t do well with the colon hydrotherapy tryout. So, Carla suggested I use a protocol that she had worked out with her experience. I followed her regimen of pureed foods etc. to clean out as much as possible before using the Klean prep. As a result I only had to use half of the Kleen prep to achieve a total clean out. In between the Klean prep doses I drank coconut water or Electro Mix to offset any suggestion of faintness. With this I didn’t feel sick at all and had no problem using the Klean prep. I would do the same thing next time.”
“I have known Carla for many years and have benefited greatly from her advice and counsel. I’m 66 and underweight, an important factor to be considered before any procedure. Following her pre/post colonoscopy protocol, advice and support has helped tremendously. I was able to take less of the Klean Prep solution, resulting in no pain nor the extreme discomfort I experienced five years before when preparing for the same procedure.
Carla’s detailed protocol including suggestions of liquids (e.g. coconut water adding Electro Mix), soup and smoothie recipes continue to be an invaluable part of my ongoing diet, health and well being. Congratulations Carla on your protocol. It will change the outlook of anyone preparing with hesitancy for a colonoscopy. Thank you and best wishes.”
“I called Carla about my upcoming colonoscopy and she suggested I follow her new formula protocol. She even customized it for me. It felt amazing! I did not get nauseous at all. I also avoided having to take all the packages of Klean Prep which was wonderful. I followed her suggestions for blended drinks and all the puréed foods. I was having huge, soft bowel movements five days prior to my colonoscopy, so I wasn’t full and I felt amazing! I was even able to work the day before my colonoscopy. Her potassium chicken broth is out of this world! I am going to continue making it because it is so yummy! Thank you so much Carla. I hope you’ll be able to share your philosophy with the world because it is so simple and it complements the doctor’s prep.”
“I am grateful to Carla and her genius in developing this well thought out method of preparation for colonoscopy. This week, I had my 6th colonoscopy; by far the most comfortable one I’ve experienced. By paying attention to my magnesium, potassium, electrolyte and balanced nutrition levels, I actually felt quite energized throughout. By committing myself to her recommendations and timeline, I saved myself a lot of discomfort. There was no nausea, cramping, bloating. No EXPLOSION . The big payoff was that I consumed only 25% of the recommended Klean Prep before “running clear”.
With a family history of colon cancer, I am required to have more frequent colonoscopies than some people. I can now look at that prospect with less dread. Carla has given me the tools to guide myself in the steps leading up to a ‘happy colonoscopy’. I am indebted to her.”
“A doctor from Mount Sinai Hospital sent me to Carla for an assessment. I had tried to have a colonoscopy three previous times. Three times I was full
and they could not finish the colonoscopy. They found out I had a torturous colon, which means my colon is longer than average. The last time I ended
up in the hospital with electrolyte loss, resulting in me losing bowel control which was very unpleasant. I am 65 years old and they thought that I may have a polyp. I had to get through the procedure and they wanted me to ensure I was clean. I was
terrified of doing this again.
Carla directed me through daily phone calls and customized my prep for colonoscopy. I was having regular soft bowel movements due to her
nutritional support. I was terrified that I was going to end up in the hospital again. But with Carla’s prep, I felt so good that I ended up being able to work for part of the day prior to my colonoscopy. I did not get nauseous. Carla’s prep was simple. I am so grateful and blessed to have had Carla’s formula and support. Not only that, I was entirely clean for my colonoscopy! Spotless. The doctors could not believe it. I recommend anyone to follow her suggestions because it was magnificent. I turned out to be polyp free as well. Thank you so very, very much, Carla! I am talking about it to all my friends and recommending they come to you when prepping for their colonoscopies. It is the way to go!”
